Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's...

Post by ZXRO » Tue Jul 24, 2007 6:05 pm

First impressions - they ripped the balls right off of 18 and Life, but at least the Holy Diver cover rocks.

I thought backwards. 18 and Life was pretty good, but I thought the vocals on Holy Diver were kinda lame.
So far I am only on the 4th set list, but so far it is a great game minus the fact it's just an expansion.

So evidently Radar Love was made famous by White Lion. Thanks for the music history lesson, Activision.

I've come to the conclusion that the vocals on most of the Guitar Hero tracks are pretty weak. I wasn't really referring to the vocals. After all, this is Guitar Hero, not Microphone Hero.

Ha, true. Play the Maiden track yet? How is that one?

The groove is ok, but nothing compares to the original. The cover just lacks the bite of the badass dual lead sound that Maiden has. Most of the covers blow. That is why I am excited about part 3 using as many real tracks as possible.

This is also why the best song on Rocks the 80's is EASILY Electric Eye. Not only did they do it right, and start it off with The Hellion, but it is the original track, and boy is it fun to play.

Another gripe...

They replaced the first verse of Los Angeles with the second verse, effectively ruining the song by not letting the listener know why "she had to leave Los Angeles". I mean, I know you can't drop the "N" bomb in a E rated game, but come on. Also, there is a boy and a girl singing, and yet graphically only the girl is represented. Who is singing the boy part?

The censorship of Police Truck, on the other hand, is hilarious.

AAAAAAAAH, I heard about Police Truck's censoring, I think I'll have to play it non stop tonight and get all of the good tracks. I've been hooked on that song ever since I got the Nailbomb DVD. GAW this game is fun... but fucking hell, you know what song is a bitch to play, What I Like About YOu, to many power chords!!!

I warned everyone here about that issue. The same thing happened to me.

Like I said, pretty much all of the vocals suck. The production value on these songs sucks as well. The first Guitar Hero game had mostly really good covers, and good production values. Most of the songs in part 2 sound like they were recorded in someones bedroom with crappy equipment. Same goes for this one.

Still fun tho.

It's up to you. It's free, they provide the shipping materials, and it takes about 2.5 weeks.
